Climate Focus is an advisory company committed to the development of policies and projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our international and multidisciplinary team works closely with companies, governments and non-governmental organizations on reducing emissions in energy, households, industry, transport, agriculture and forestry.
Climate Focus is an independent expert in international and national climate law, policies, project design and finance. We have been pioneering carbon markets ever since their inception. We aim to find a creative and unique solution for every single client, ranging from the development of policies to protect the rainforest to structuring greenhouse gas mitigation projects in the energy sector. Our advice is rooted in a profound knowledge of climate change policies, emission trading schemes and project development.
Climate Focus has offices in Amsterdam, Washington, DC, and Berlin, and representatives in Lisbon, Bogotá, and Bangkok. We complement our core team with a broad network of in-country and specialized partners.
Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of emission reductions is a major effort for many project developers. This is especially so when dealing with decentralized clean energy projects, such as household scale biogas, clean cookstoves or solar home systems. Instead of using paper trail and local databases, IDBP staff collects data in the field based on digital questionnaires that automatically sync to the cloud where it is accessible to both field and office staff, and potentially to buyers of the carbon credits.
Climate Focus and California Environmental Associates present their report published in April 2014 Strategies for Mitigating Climate Change in Agriculture: Recommendations for Philanthropy, commissioned by the Climate and Land Use Alliance.
